I have been struggling with pain in the groin (in the right leg) for some time, which begins during training and usually lasts until the end of the day, and the next morning there is no trace of it. Pain occurs during about 75% of workouts, especially the more intense ones. It happens that after lighter runs the pain subsides or it significantly decreases after post-training stretching. During the run it is tolerable, but sometimes I have to limp for a few moments right after the run is over. Recently, I noticed that while exercising the abdominal muscles, my groin started to ache at some point, but the pain was so slight that after a dozen or so minutes after the end of the exercises it subsided. Could it be a matter of weak stretching or not adapting the body to such a load (I started exercising relatively recently, but I have always been in quite good shape)?

There may also be inflammation causing pain. In that case, first try the inflammation-reducing ointments available in regular pharmacies.

This is definitely not a normal reaction from an organism that is not used to exercise. Each training should be preceded by a proper warm-up and mobilization (I am attaching a video with a few simple mobilizing exercises: and, which will eliminate the possibility. Each pain is a signal from the body that something is wrong, so please do not underestimate it and try to solve it yourself first using the methods provided, and if necessary go to a specialist.
